Now, Sheriff Finch’s office says he plans to hold a press conference on Wednesday morning.
Finch was on trial for charges of official misconduct. He was arrested back in June on allegations that he released a suspect arrested for weapons charges and Finch allegedly destroyed the arrest documents.
Governor Rick Scott removed Sheriff Finch from office following the arrests and reinstated after the acquittal.
The case drew the attention of gun rights groups who defended Finch, saying he was exercising the second amendment.
